Morning has broken…

Have a most blessed Sunday, Dear Friends!  I was up at the crack of dawn working on some stuff.  I was tired, but it was nice to be able see the day gradually got brighter and brighter…


Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dew fall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness, where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

by Eleanor Farjeon (1931)

  1. You, my Friend, are FULL of the presence of the Lord. You are an inspiration to everyone.
    Even although you work hard, it is GOD who gives you the increase and success. It is NO WONDER that you are so blessed……and passing ALL of that on to Ms. Gwen. PTL on this wonderful day.

  2. Loved reading the words of this beautiful hymn this morning. Thank you for posting it – a little blessing to my life today.

  3. I sang that in church during an Easter service one year as a teen. That song always gives me a feeling of peacefulness. Thanks for a wonderful memory!
